Kendrick Lamar Releases ‘Not Like Us’ Music Video, Takes a Few More Swings at Drake

Kendrick Lamar’s highly anticipated “Not Like Us” music video has arrived — and in it, he managed to take a few more swings at Drake.

via THR:

The Compton rapper finally released the music video for “Not Like Us,” his now-legendary Drake diss track, on Thursday. The video, which comes after Lamar performed the song six times in a row at his joyous “The Pop Out” concert last month, could be described as the cap on Lamar’s definitive victory over Drake in the beef between the two rappers that dominated pop culture for much of this year.

The video features several references to Drake and his OVO label, and shows Lamar celebrating with West Coast hip-hop luminaries, as well as containing several subtle and not-so subtle references to the feud.

Directed by the Lamar and Dave Free, the video features several cameos from prominent West Coast figures, including “Not Like Us” producer Mustard, who is also wearing a Toronto Blue Jays cap in one of the more obvious jabs at Drake. Also featured are Tommy the Clown, Compton-born NBA star (and former Toronto Raptors player) DeMar DeRozan, as well as Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, CEO of Top Dog Entertainment label.

The video begins with the rapper doing push-ups on cinder blocks in a room accessed by Tommy the Clown. The scene is a reference to Drake’s “Push Ups,” during the release of which Drake referenced a photo of Lamar doing push-ups.
